Four month stats

Weight: 15 lbs 11 oz
Length: 25 inches
Eating:  an average of 30 ounces a day (you are not consistent with the number of ounces you drink. It ranges between 4-6 ounces per feeding)
Likes:  you love for people to talk and sing to you, going to the pool, big brother, being outside, playing in your exersaucer, taking baths, practicing sitting up and bouncing on your legs. 
Dislikes:  riding in the car and being on your stomach. 
Sleeping:  two words:  ROCK STAR!  I put you down around 930 and you sleep until 630 the next morning, eat and then go back to sleep until 9 or 930. You are just like your mommy!  You also take two cat naps (morning and evening) and one good afternoon nap (about 2 hours). 
Things you are doing:  smiling and laughing a lot (especially when we sing "if you're happy and you know it"), pushing up on your arms, pushing with your legs to "crawl" over your boppy, putting weight on your legs to play in your exersaucer and bounce, sucking your thumb, following me with your eyes when I leave the room, smiling at me when I come back and making short vowel sounds when you babble. 
Isabella you bring so much happiness to our lives. You are so happy and loving. Life with you has been such an easy adjustment for our family. Love you.
